Team Building / Training
On- or off-site programs for teams, leaders, or whole organizations that need a boost of energy and fresh perspective in working together positively and whole-heartedly. Wild at work is never boring. We roll up our sleeves and dive into the specifics of what your team most needs, using sled dog or whitewater analogies to explore everyday challenges of working together. A blend of small group exercises, self-reflection, memorable stories, and Wild dares (created by the group) keeps people engaged and makes the experience vibrant and useful.
- Highlight and draw out the strengths and skills of each individual in your team.
- Deepen your team’s capacity to work together from a place of self-knowledge, compassionate presence, and courageous conversations.
- Build high-performing teams that dare to engage, speak up, and care.
- Managing Change
- Less People / More Work
- Working with Strengths

The “anti-ropes” course approach to building better teams
Wild team trips are decidedly NOT stress/challenge programs. We figure your team already knows what it’s like to work together under stress. Why not try something different?
Examples of Team Trips Include
- Canoe days on the river for up to 20 people (50 miles north of Minneapolis/St Paul)
- 2 day dogsledding adventures for up to 8 people (outside of Duluth MN)
What can a little bit of wilderness offer your team?
1. Experience one another when not in a stressful environment, and bring that perspective back to the workplace for clearer communication, shared vision, and improved productivity
2. Discover new ways of knowing and supporting each other
3. Focus on what your team needs most: shared mission/vision; invigoration and inspiration; improved communication; collaboration and relational skills…and have some fun along the way!
4. Appreciate and acknowledge individuals or teams (sometimes these experiences are used as a big “thank you” to teams/groups who have gone the extra mile or reached a significant goal)
